Over the weekend I starting watching a new show on Netflix, called Scandal ! Not only is the main character played by the lovely, Kerry Washington who is one of only a few African-American women to land a lead role on prime-time television. The first to do so since 1974. Now you can understand why I’m blown away by Scandal and much more!
The show is based on Judy Smith’s life, a damage control specialist/lawyer/PR Executive, who is a co-producer for the show along side Shonda Rhimes, creator of longtime popular series Grey’s Anatomy. The show is about Olivia Pope, a crisis management specialist who fixes clients. Beyond the plot of the show, it encompasses some killer fashion choices that Olivia Pope wears that make you want to update your business attire.
It never occurred to me that professional wardrobe could be feminine, stylish and portray leadership. However, after watching this show along with another of my favorites, Damages I want to upgrade my closet with a few Oliva Pope essentials, especially in time for fall.
I want this zip up off-white top!
I’m looking for a new trench but I think I’ll stick to camel but we’ll see.
I need to layer a couple long elegant necklaces, done!
The seafoam blouse compliments the entire ensemble.
I didn’t make it this year to the big apple to celebrate NYFW (bummer) but if I did you can bet my feet would be in dire need of relief. I would absolutely rock my favorite stilettos and pumps etc, therefore, I need a subtle ballet flat to store in my carry-all or clutch depending on the event. Tadaa!!! BALLASOX! Check ‘em out only $60 a pair! Yahoo!!
